The joy of rain
After such a long dry time here in Australia it is so nice to see that rain has been falling in some areas, at least. This past weekend I was visiting some friends down in the southern tablelands of NSW and we had downpours almost everyday. In fact, they've had 4" in February. On the farm where they live there were some paddocks that had only been brown dried grass ever since they had bought the property a couple of years ago. Now it's a beautiful green and the grass almost grows inches as you watch it. Wonderful!
